My family has a long running joke about the Jitterbug phone and how odd and insulting  to older people the advertisements were:  “The buttons are so BIG and easy to READ!”  “The ear cushion makes talking on the phone so much more COMFORTABLE!”  But truthfully I always thought it was just a good idea executed poorly.

The truth is, there are a LOT of people out there who would prefer a cell phone that just makes calls – not receive emails, texts, or Facebook notifications.  These people have had an ever dwindling selection of cheap, ugly phones – until now!  John Doe Amsterdam has designed a very cute alternative to the boring feature phone with surprisingly fewer features than ever.

It even has a built-in pen and paper!  Genius!
